Calling "ALL" Winners and Losers of the 2008 TD's

post #1 of 278
Thread Starter 
If you participated in any of the 2008 Throwdowns and would like to participate in the 2008 Throwdown Ultimate Championship in January, please REPLY HERE.

Here's how it will work (and to keep it simple).

1. All the winners compete against each other in their skill set
2. All the losers compete against each other in their skill set
3. All Photos are due by 3 pm CST on Saturday, January 24, 2009

Note: If you won a TD, but then lost a subsequent one, you would be in the Winner's Circle - you can't be in both.

Please REPLY here with the following informaiton if you want to participate.

1. Your name and Screen Name
2. The month(s) you won your TD or Lost your TD
3. Your skill level so I put you in the right group.
a) Beginner - decorating for less than 2 years
b) Intermediate - decorating for 2 to 4 years
c) Advanced - decorating for 4+ years
4. Each group will get to select their theme

If you know of someone who won, but isn't on here much anymore, can you please let me know so I can PM them or if you can, that would be GREAT!

Hopefully we have enough interest and hopefully we have more than 1 person in each skill level.

Also, we were supposed to have 4 TD's this month. I am declaring Jillmakescakes a winner for her throwdown by default as her opponent had to cancel due to an illness. I have already advised her to add herself to this list - the winner's list - with a link to her photo.

Hey Tina - How funny, I just sent you an email. I think I found all the TD contestants and reached out to them via email. Let's hope we get some takers. Here's who I emailed:

kansaswolf
pinklesley1
Sugar_Plum_Fairy
marthajo1
BrandisBaked
cocorum21
Wendoger
ladyonzlake
crazy4sugar
jkalman
tiptop57
Sugar_Plum_Fairy
wgoat5
Teekakes
live">]Coutouriere - Jacque can't do it right now, but said thanks anyway.

And since whoever created the TD's said that throwdowns are for only 2 contestants, we'll need to call this contest something different....How about:

"Ultimate TD Smackdown - '08 Winner's Circle"
"Ultimate TD Smackdown - '08 Loser's Corner"

OK, count me in. I am so far out of the CC loop these last few months that I am not sure what all has happened with the TD's.
I am sooooooooo glad you all have continued on with them and to know they are still going strong! icon_smile.gif



1. Lea......TeeKakes
2. Loser. First TD ever.....April I think is when I started this by
challenging Christi, WGoat5, to an Easter ThrowDown. She was stuck
in a rut and kind of depressed regarding what theme to make for
Easter. She did not want the typical bunnies, eggs, chickens, etc.....I
thought a challenge would be a good way to get her creative juices
flowing and become a fun thing for CC members on a monthly
basis. icon_smile.gif
3. Intermediate. I started cake decorating in January of 2007, making
next month my 2 year anniversary.
